Lockdown Browser and Mac Lion OS X

Respondus Lockdown Browser, used by faculty to prevent online surfing or communication during online test sessions, is not yet updated for Mac OS 10.7, “Lion”.    Several institutions have reported the problem to Respondus. According to Respondus Tech Support, they have started the testing process with LockDown Browser on OS X Lion but no release date has been established for updates to LockDown Browser for Macintosh.  We will keep you updated as we learn about new releases.

A temporary solution for those who use OS X Lion is to use another system, such as  Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard to take tests with LockDown Browser.  All main campus computers in the Information Commons and college labs should have a working copy of Respondus installed.   Unfortunately, Lockdown Browser will not operate on the UT Virtual Lab.
